9 Awards Won

Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 29e
Budget: 07/31/17 - 07/30/19

Cooling experiments to ultra-cold temperatures permits exceptionally sensitive measurements to be made. This enables the study of subjects from quantum computation to subtle variations in the cosmic microwave background (CMB). To date, there is only one practical technology which can continuously cool high power experiments below 0.2 Kelvin, the...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: BT
Budget: 07/01/16 - 06/30/17

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is to understand how conductivity in the brain is affected by anatomical variability between patients and, more importantly, to enable precise treatment of neurological diseases using transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) and Transc...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 29
Budget: 06/13/16 - 03/12/17
PI: Mike Snow

Cooling experiments to ultra-cold temperatures permits exceptionally sensitive measurements to be made. This enables the study of subjects from quantum computation to subtle variations in the cosmic microwave background (CMB). To date, there is only one practical technology which can continuously cool high power experiments below 200 milliKelvin...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: MI
Budget: 01/01/16 - 06/30/16

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of a novel Continuous Adiabatic Demagnetization Refrigerator (CADR) design by building and testing a prototype. This new technology has the potential to greatly reduce the cost of ultra-low temperature research. Currently, if a researcher needs to kee...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Institute of Standards and Technology
Topic: 9.03.02.68-R
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become a primary diagnostic tool in scientific research and clinical imaging. Despite the excellent image quality that can be obtained with today’s MRIs, images acquired using different MRI systems and during longitudinal studies are not reproducible, and hence can be difficult, if not impossible, to compare....

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Health & Human Services
Topic: PA-09-080
Budget: 09/27/10 - 04/30/12

DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Prostate cancer (PCa) is the second leading cause of male cancer deaths in the U.S., and although the disease can be managed or treated in many ways, clinicians lack suitable scanning tools for diagnosing and tracking PCa. Conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) at 1.5 tesla and above is used increasing...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of California, Santa Barbara

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-T020
Budget: 08/06/10 - 08/05/11

Currently large capacity cryostats, capable of hosting experiments for many qubits, require expensive and hard to obtain liquid cryogens. A few small cryo-free systems exist but they are non-ideal for this use. An opportunity exists for a large scale, c

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Institute of Standards and Technology
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09
PI: Unavailable

Transition Edge Sensor (TES) detector development at NIST has reached a level where arrays containing several thousand pixels (kilopixels) are practical and , indeed, necessary for fielding systems required for many industrial, research, and homeland security applications. Current easily deployable cryostat technology required to reach the ultra...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California, Santa Barbara

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-T020
Budget: 07/11/08 - 01/07/09

Develop a Pulse Tube Cooler (PTC) driven Dilution Refrigerator (DR) to provide for cryogen free, rapid turn-around for operating large number of qubits. This effort will incorporate low vibration features, high-density and high-speed wiring technology. The proposed system will require no liquid helium, thereby avoiding the cost and availability ...
